Through her latest series your thoughts become your world, Sylvia Schwenk utilises the alchemical nature of watercolour and acrylic paints to create and conjure an intimate series of abstract paintings.
Melding and blending two highly symbolic colours, Schwenk has created a series of works which act as a visual metaphor for a world with a brighter and more hopeful future. For the artist, the very act of creating these works was a calming and meditative way in which to spend time imagining a fairer world. In this way Schwenk embraces the magic and transformative qualities of art making, to create a series of elegant and refined paintings, which can be appreciated simply for their formal and aesthetic qualities, or instead as a reminder of the power of our thoughts to create positive change.
